THE STORY:
SPIN GIRL SPIN was actually my tenth album but it was the first to be released and recorded since I moved to Florida in 1998. This was a landmark album for me. It was my first to be recorded with a live drummer. It was my first to be released on CD (all my previous albums had been DIY cassette releases…) At the time I was listening to a lot of Marianne Faithfull. I drew inspiration from the manner she resurrected and reinvented her shattered, tarnished spirit.

Lyrically on this album I dealt with a lot of things I was struggling with at the time. A fear of intimacy. The whirlwind of my constant moving in the late 90s. Depression. Internet addiction. Compulsive sexual behavior. And they all became songs…

This is a pretty dark album. At the time I was carrying around a lot of sadness and a lot of disappointment in ths human race.
